Job 38: 1-11

1Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said:
2“Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?
3 Dress for action like a man;
I will question you, and you make it known to me.
4“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?
Tell me, if you have understanding.
5Who determined its measurements—surely you know!
Or who stretched the line upon it?
6On what were its bases sunk,
or who laid its cornerstone,
7when the morning stars sang together
and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
8“Or who shut in the sea with doors
when it burst out from the womb,
9when I made clouds its garment
and thick darkness its swaddling band,
10and prescribed limits for it
and set bars and doors,
11and said, ‘Thus far shall you come, and no farther,
and here shall your proud waves be stayed’?


F3 = Unit Cohesion – Appreciate the fitness, but cherish the fellowship, encourage others to take up the mantle of leadership with the Q community

Trust in our sovereign Lord – He is in control of everything even we don’t see/feel it

Prov 6:16-19
16There are six things that the Lord hates,
seven that are an abomination to him:
17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue,
and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 a heart that devises wicked plans,
feet that make haste to run to evil,
19 a false witness who breathes out lies,
and one who sows discord among brothers.

Anger should be controlled except in the area of sin; we should hate sin as much as God does.  Direct your anger towards sin (not the sinner) and realize how important that is in part of the sanctification process – abhor sin in the way our Father does and we’ll be less likely to repeat it.

The concept of spiritual leadership within marriage is one we should be students of throughout our lives as believers.  I have been married for 24 years, and this concept is one that I continually find myself learning more with each passing year.  You never truly arrive, it’s a continual process
One thing I know, God holds you as the husband accountable for your marriage…high burden? Yes.  Easy to remember? Yes.  Take responsibility for the tone, the tenseness, the rockiness, that comes and goes in each marriage
Matt 7:3-5 3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.
It’s important to always ask yourself in the midst of conflict/correction “Log or Speck?” Think before you go right to the speck–is it really furthering the Kingdom of God, or should you be more interested in God working through your heart to change?

Isaiah 1: 16-17a
Wash and make yourselves clean.
Take your evil deeds out of my sight;
stop doing wrong.
Learn to do right; seek justice.
Eph 2:8-9
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.
Rom 10:9-10
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
Don’t make the gospel so complicated, simply accept the gospel and live it out.

Romans 12: 7-11:

Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes discipline—then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all. Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spirits and live! They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.”

While we undergo suffering in some shape/form right now, we as believers know that there is a purpose in it and can take comfort that we will come through this stronger than before.  Take heart men, and represent Christ well in being a positive influence for our families, communities, and the world.
